British bookmaker predicts mobile casino gaming boom

Victor Chandler predicts more to come from mobile

Prominent British bookie Victor Chandler has said he sees mobile continuing to play a big role in the online gaming business, saying companies have "barely scratched the surface" of the medium.

Mr Chandler, who oversees the popular BetVictor gaming empire, is known in the business for embracing new technologies, and was one of the first to pioneer both online and mobile gaming.

Now, like most online casinos, he caters for a range of games, including sports betting and casino classics such as roulette and blackjack.

"The world moves so fast and I couldn't tell you what was going to be the next game-changing technology for our sector, but I'm sure there's more to come from mobile," Chandler told the Huffington Post.

He firmly believes that more and more online gamers will soon switch to a mobile platform, suggesting that everyone he knows uses mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPad much more than their home desktop or laptop computer.

Chandler also indicated that the company's distinctive TV ad spots featuring actor Paul Kaye would continue, and claimed that the only other bookmaker who had impressed him with their advertising was Paddy Power. The Irish bookie has become known for a series of controversial television campaigns.

Slingshot roulette one of many games to enjoy

Most bookmakers provide a wide variety of casino games to enjoy both online and on your mobile device. Choices include betting on live and virtual sport, poker, blackjack, slots and roulette.

Of course, there are many different versions of all these games to be found. For example, slingshot roulette is a variety of the iconic game in which the ball is released by a machine rather than by a dealer. With the rise of live dealers offering even more choice for players, this could become as important a distinction for those playing at home or on the go as it is for gamers in an actual casino.
